Flooding down-river from the Morganza spillway in Louisiana is currently causing impacts on ports, shipping, industry, the large state university, the state prison, agriculture, and more. So, it’s really hard to see how they can justify not opening the Morganza Spillway, which would reduce this flooding.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers opened the Morganza floodway, May 14, 2011.

UPDATE: OPERATION OF THE MORGANZA FLOODWAY POSTPONED
Published June 6, 2019
NEW ORLEANS – Based on the current forecast, the Corps will not operate the Morganza Floodway on June 9 and does not have an expected operating date.  Future weather events could impact Mississippi River levels and the Corps will continue to monitor the forecast daily as conditions can change.  

Operation of the structure will be a consideration until the Mississippi River crests and begins to fall. The expected crest at Morganza is on or about June 15, but it will then remain high for two weeks or more.
The Army Corps of Engineers only intends to operate the structure when needed as to not put additional water into the Atchafalaya Basin.
Updates will be provided on Facebook at facebook.com/usacenola, Twitter at twitter.com/teamneworleans and at http://www.usace.army.mil.

[Update: Non Army Corps Engineer talking about the Morganza, stress on the levees from flooding, and role of paving over so much US land in creating the flood: https://youtu.be/IcLn5W0eYcQ ]

What the Army Corps official says sounds convincing, until you read the river flooding/high water impacts below the Morganza spillway, which would be reduced if the spillway were opened. We put the flooding impacts further below.

Great interview, which explains that they are inspecting every foot of 1000 miles of levee, every day: http://talk1073.com/2019/06/07/col-michael-clancy-on-the-morganza-spillway A 2011 video suggests, however, that this may be by truck, rather than by foot.

If what the Army Corps says is true, that they don’t want to flood private property in the Morganza spillway, then they need to formally expropriate the land. Without the Army Corps river control system, the area would be under water anyway. They are actually choosing to flood private property along the Mississippi River, by refusing to open the Morganza spillway. For instance, At 6:00 PM Friday the stage [of the Mississippi] was 43.4 feet in Baton Rouge… Flood stage is 35.0 feet… The river will continue rising to near 44.5 feet by Sunday June 16… At 43.0 feet…Shipping and industrial activities are significantly affected. Unprotected low-lying areas will be flooded and agricultural operations will be impacted on the west side of the river. The city of Baton Rouge is protected by levees at this level.” Read more further below under flood warning.

Levee failure along the petrochemical corridor could be catastrophic. Also, dolphins are dying off apparently because they have to put more water through the Bonnet Carre spillway.

The top decision maker – Kaiser – is a Trump appointee, albeit a rare qualified appointee.
Given the current state of affairs, one can be forgiven for wondering if Trump is waiting for someone to pay up along the Mississippi, or favoring a friend, by failing to open the Morganza. Or, if he got orders not to open it from Moscow, via Nigel Farage in the UK. He met with Farage on June 4th. On June 3rd, it had been delayed from Thurday, to Sunday. Then, on June 6th, it was delayed indefinitely.

Louisiana’s major cities and ports are being hammered, and at least one person died from flooding in Baton Rouge. Louisiana has parishes instead of counties. Baton Rouge is in East Baton Rouge Parish. Updates here: https://water.weather.gov/ahps2/ahps_warnings.php?wfo=LIX
